    Ben's showing me Austin from on top of Mt. Bonnell. Here's he's showing me UT, and I'm ignoring him so I can share this with you. See how nice I am?

    What, Ben? What were you saying? Sorry. Can we find a Starbucks now??

    Left early in the morning, so I haven't got photos from the windfarm or anything- use your imagination.

    Used to have Prada stuff displayed, now it's a stopover for travelers who leave their artsy little cards behind.


    **just saw another post that there's now product back in the Prada display. Enjoy!

    Yep. I'll get around to posting the (to me, much more interesting) return trip.

    Rode into storms in the mountains that matched the noise in my head, helped some folks after they wrecked their truck, made it down to Camp Verde and saw this guy at the gas station:

    This here's Matt "No Balls". It's great having friends here in Arizona. The people who choose to live in here are as great friends as the environment is unforgiving.

    My therapist observed, "you go to Arizona for answers, don't you?". I think he's right- or at least it's all the excuse I need to go to Arizona...

    matt and I rode up to Payson and over to Camp Verde (yes, again for me...).

    Between Scottsdale proper and Fountain Hills, it's a challenging enough trail for me. I got used to the heat after about a week or so, so it was probably only 112 degrees when I took this photo.
